    I do exercise daily as I want to burn calories faster. I tried TaeBo before but can't keep up so I switched in Cardio HipHop which works for me better I know that exercise alone won't be enough so I also made my diet healthy. I cut rice and eat more vegetables and fruits. I already lose a few pounds thanks to my daily dance plus a balanced and healthy diet.

Having said that, growing up I loved swimming and was decent at it and regularly went to the swimming baths after school. Fast-forward to my later adolescence and I started gaining some weight. Nonetheless I tried going to the gym sometimes, but after becoming ill about nine years ago swimming hasn't been an option and I gradually lost motivation to go to the gym as well. But after my surgery this year I want to change it all and eventually swim every single day.

    Probably my most successful attempt to lose weight was with a particular diet I tried last year before I had to stay at a hospital. It was great, but it's difficult to get into as it's a keto diet and you need to experience a lot of hunger until you get into ketosis (a state in which your body directly consumes fat as an energy source) and start feeling fine eating a lot less. It's doable, though. This is why I think for the time being I can go without exercise.

    What you said about posture is interesting. I know the problem too. Using a computer a lot is a major factor. It's why I made the decision to invest in a Kickstarter project that aims to fix a lot of postural problems. Coincidentally I should be getting mine in the next week or two. I'll let you know how my experience is. It's a terrible thing to slouch a lot, but it's also really difficult to avoid for those who have made a habit out of it. I wish you luck with it, KorinKitty. I think looking at how you sleep is important, especially your bed and position. Memory foam might be a good idea, and learning how to sleep on your back will help a lot if you don't do it already.
    Oh yes I need to invest in a better mattress. The one I am using now is memory foam but it is a budget topper so it goes over my other mattress. I plan on getting anew mattress before the year is over. I sleep on my back most nights but lately I have been waking up on my stomach which is BAD for my neck. I have to find a way to fix that.

    I don't get anywhere near as much as I should. I just down too much time working. I wish I was able to fit more exercise in, in a way that worked well with my routine

    Each day I alternate between weight-lifting and aerobics (which consists of running on the treadmill for half an hour) at my local gym. I'm still a bit chubby though, as my dietary habits are pretty bad, which I'm still working on changing. I'm thinking about taking up martial arts too, currently considering kickboxing.

    Well not hardly enough is the short answer, but I would like to think that I have been getting a little bit better. Of course I had grand intentions of stepping it up in the new year but we all know those things rarely play out.

    Well the only exercise I get is whenever I walk outside to buy something in the market which is just a 10 to 15 minute walk from our house. It is quite good if I'd do that everyday but I just get to do that around twice a week. Aside from that, every other day whenever a friend of mine comes over, I walk him to the gate of the village where he waits for his ride home, that's about a 10 minute walk. It's much better than no exercise at all I think.

    I'm inconsistent. Sometimes I dedicate myself to exercising like 3 times a weeks and then another time I will go without exercising for like 6 months. I have good aesthetics so I don't really need to exercise and I have no intention in getting bigger but I feel so bad when I neglect doing it.

    Indeed, posture is hugely important as well. It's something I've often struggled with. I really try to catch myself now, since the doc told me that standing and sitting with correct posture is imperative with my issues.

    I recently started a program called "Classic Stretch." Currently, I'm just using the free vids available on the website for now. It will probably seem "old lady" to you guys, but it's really good for someone with injuries like me. I could barely exercise at all without hurting myself, before I started this. It's very simple and relaxed, but I noticed a difference right away. In fact, if I skip a day, I notice that too.

    Here's a link to the one for building better posture, if you're interested: https://player.vimeo.com/video/110831539 It's around 7 minutes long.

    Not as much as I should be. Bought a bicycle that I rode for a solid month then stopped. Also have a gym membership that I'm paying for but not using. Work drags on long and when I get home I'm not motivated to do anything. Going to try and start going again after work, or at least on the weekends.

    Thirty minutes a day minimum of uninterrupted exercise, cardio if nothing else!

    Good habits are hard to establish. I know this from experience. But know that you can do it. The more you do it, the easier it is, like anything else.
    It just becomes muscle-memory. If I don't have my little slice of exercise every day, I don't feel as good. If I miss two days, forget it. I feel like crap!

    Also, stretch! Stretching improves blood flow and helps prevent unnecessary injury. Not to mention it just feels good.
    I stretch twice a day, typically, and before/after exercise.
